Peer-reviewed, revised, and edited from presentations, 21 papers address Slavic linguistics from such perspectives as surface phonotactics
in morphology: ongoing change in the Belarusian noun declension, three kinds of "homogeneous" patterns of Czech numerals: a phrasal spell out account, island obviation in contrasting fragment answers: evidence from Bulgarian li-questions, Slavic-induced syntactic changes in Yiddish: a parametric account, and frequency distributions as faithless targets: why Bulgarians feminized Turkish nouns.
The effect of teaching English phonotactics

Age-related changes in sensitivity to native phonotactics

Note that the above instances are considered to be geminate because there are some words with similar phonotactics
which cannot be pronounced like the above.
, assimilation, vowel harmonization, liaison, elision, stress, intonation, morphemes, are all suprasegmental features.

and phonology of obstruent clusters in optimality theory.
They observed that mono- and bi-syllabic non-words composed of familiar segmental sequences of English were repeated faster than non-words composed of infrequent sequences, suggesting that facilitatory effects of probabilistic phonotactics
reflect differences among activation levels of sublexical units (segments or sequences of segments).
We find changes, for example, to individual segments ( replaced by [ts] in Veneto), changes to segmental processes (elimination of nasal + stop voicing assimilation in central and southern dialects), changes to phonotactics
(vowel epenthesis between non-Italian sequences of consonants, such as /mt/ in Emilian /zgumte/ > /zgumite/ 'to elbow'; cf.

In the process of identifying the presence of phonotactics
characterize this as a manifestation rather than the result of this comparison, it can imply a new fact that ISPs are actually a separate language groups.
